In support of those affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, Aronson’s Charities of the Month for October 2017 are One America Appeal and Unidos Por Puerto Rico (United for Puerto Rico). All team member contributions will go to One America Appeal and be specifically directed towards United for Puerto Rico.
The One America Appeal is a joint appeal that was originally launched by all five living former American Presidents to encourage their fellow citizens to support recovery efforts from Hurricane Harvey — which inundated the Texas Gulf Coast with unprecedented flooding. This special appeal has been expanded to include areas most affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
United for Puerto Rico is an initiative brought forth by the First lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló in collaboration with the private sector, with the purpose of providing aid and support to those affected in Puerto Rico by the passage of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María.
About Denim Days: Aronson employees may wear denim in the office throughout the week and are encouraged to provide a small contribution towards our Charity of the Month. The Aronson Foundation matches (up to $1,000) the funds collected for Denim Days each month to contribute towards the month’s designated charity. The monthly recipients are nominated by employees who have personal involvement with a charitable organization.
